I ran across an article exploding the myth that somehow big football players only get that way by abusing steroids:
http://www.slate.com/articles/health...eat_steak.html

Some of us are just meant to be big! Or at least, to be able to play "Choose a size".

Now I only wonder, Lille, if time spent on here counted toward hours spent helping out people who need it ... ;-)

More seriously: Congrats!

I'm sorry things ended up that way with your boss, Odette - - but glad you have made it out!

And oy, when the wrong person ends up leader in a parliamentary system, it can be so hard to get them out. I've been following the saga in SA, and let out a mental cheer for you all when I saw the news. I hope you get someone more worthy of your trust.

Take a deep breath Odette - and then take your time to clear your mind before you start your next endeavour. Bonne chance!

Also - totally with you regarding Zuma - that was overdue.

Add on to Tad's point though - were you referring to non-existing term limits in almost all parliamentary systems? Or to something else??

About this time in three weeks, I will be in the arms of a beautiful ex Dimmer. I still can't believe how lucky I am to have her in my life.

Yikes.... I don't know about 3 semesters/year. I have to have time off to get my head right.

Professors...lol... Yea, I call them by their first name and talk to them like an adult which gets the idea that they are going to lorde over me right out of their head. I give respect before it's given when it comes to instructors, but I won't be treated like a child by someone that's around my age, and in rare cases younger...

I actually found that most of my lecturers at uni treated the students with politeness and respect, even though I was a terrified 18 year old when I first met most of them. I guess it depends on the person? Some of them were absolute asshats but I didn't feel patronised by any of them. It sounds like I was lucky.

Well i think it's partially because i am a professional in my own career who has trained others (and teaches on the side), so I find some have an overblown sense of superiority that as a child i might have thought justified, which i know find insufferable. And their poorly worded or explained questions do not create confusion in me, they spark anger at their unprofessionaism.

That being said, in Canada, there is not much tenure anymore. Most of these teachers work part time and get paid poorly - so why would they try and be exceptional? Or even have the opportunity to become exceptional, when this is only a part time gig for them...

I've had a few truly exceptional teachers, and so I have a lot of disappointment with those who fail to measure up =p

To add an example:

Teacher said i was not using APA properly.
I asked what example?
She told me to "go figure it out, it was my job as a student."
I politely emailed, showing her i was using rhe university aupplied APA link, and showed which sections i used. I asked her if she could direct me to another site, it the university APA was wrong, or clarify which section I should have used.

She refused to reply. Why? Because she was wrong, and couldn't justify her reaponse, and certainly could not allow a student to be prove her wrong. I didn't escalate to the dean only because my marl was good enough/starting a new job was taking all my energy... otherwise she would have gotten a Canadian smackdown for unprofessionalism from me.

That sort of BS doesn't fly with me =p

As it shouldn't. If you tell someone she's made a mistake, you need to show why it's wrong and what she should have done. The job of the teacher is to get the pupil to the point where she no longer needs the teacher.

Yeah, I only has one really unpleasant professor. He normally taught at a graduate level but was teaching an undergrad into to physiology course due to a schedule conflict with the usual professor. I think 2/3 of us failed the first exam. It was bad. So bad that our lab teacher were giving all sorts of stuff for extra credit to help us bring our grades up because they knew it wasn't our fault.

Other than that I had a lot of good professors. I actually kept in contact with my one of my writing professors for about after graduation because he was so impactful.

Just to be clear, I've only had bad experiences with two profs so far.... I'm not one for taking that kind of approach in every situation. Almost everything that I've experienced in college has been positive so far, other than not really wanting to deal with teenagers all the time, or old folks that are in more advanced software dev classes and don't even know how to inspect html on a browser.

Because the Prime Minister is the leader of the largest party (pretty much always in the case of the british system, near-always in more coalition based ones), if the party is strong enough and the leader has enough support from enough sections of the party, a leader who is widely unpopular can keep leading a country for a long time, whereas in a presidential system they have to get directly re-elected (and are more apt to face term limits)
